GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Once again, Green Bay police officers are making a difference for those in need.

The department is hosting the second annual "Badges Giving Baskets" event.

Members of the department hand-delivered baskets of food to families in need in the community.

The initiative is designed to re-invest in the community.

Officers say it's a great way to create a positive relationship between officers and residents.

"This initiative is all about creating positive contacts with police officers in the community. Our goal here in the police department is all about community engagement," said Captain Kevin Warych of the Green Bay Police Department.

The food in each basked was provided by Feeding America.
